Presenting the first monographic exhibition of Jakob + MacFarlane in Germany. The multidisciplinary and multicultural architecture studio, founded by Dominique Jakob and Brendan MacFarlane in 1997, is one of the most experimental offices operating in Paris. Projects like 'Frac' in Orleans, Restaurant 'Georges' at Centre Pompidou, 'Orange Cube' and 'Euronews Headquarters' in Lyon are the results of their unique mode of architectonic form-making, in which the firm developed, through exploration of digital technology - both as conceptual tool and as means of production - a distinctive, individualistic signature that simultaneously redefines local context.
Eight projects illustrating the characteristic and powerful architectural work of MacFarlane and Jakob: Georges Restaurant at the Pompidou Center, Paris (2000), the Docks of Paris – Cité de la Mode et du Design Paris (2008), Les Turbulences FRAC Centre in Orléans (2013), the Orange Cube – Lyon (2010), Maison Boulogne - Paris (2016), Herold Social Housing - Paris (2008), Conservatory of Music and Dance – Noisy le Sec (2017) and Frederic Malle Perfume Shop, Paris (2016).
Through its creativity and rigor Jakob + MacFarlane have achieved a worldwide reputation, receiving the International Architecture Award from the Chicago Athenaeum in 2014. Furthermore, they were nominated for the Mies van der Rohe European Architecture Award in 2015. Their projects have been exhibited in museums, including the Centre Pompidou in Paris, the SFMOMA in San Francisco, the Mori Art Museum in Tokyo, the Victoria & Albert Museum in London, the Venice Biennale in 2002, 2008 and 2016 and the Museum of Architecture in Moscow.
